Shinta Mani Hotels will launch its first flagship

first_imgShinta Mani Hotels will launch its first flagship Bensley Collection property in mid-December 2017. The boutique resort will comprise 10 ultra-luxe two-level expansive villas in the cultural heart of the historic town of Siem Reap, Cambodia.In collaboration with designer and architect Bill Bensley, Shinta Mani Hotels ‘Bensley Collection’, will be an portfolio of super-luxe hotels and resorts showcasing visionary concepts, extraordinary design and bespoke service.In creating his collection, Bensley has assumed complete freedom to let his creative spirit run free and showcase his skill in crafting luxury experiences with his personal brilliance. He has designed the villas as he likes to live; surrounded by lush gardens which are completely private. Knowing the importance of sleep, Bill has designed the most comfortable beds imaginable, with Khmer inspired sheets and a plethora of feather or ‘as you like’ pillows. Bill has overseen every detail of design and service to ensure a type of indulgence he calls ‘escapism’ (also the title of his book) and one that guests will long remember.On arrival at Siem Reap’s International airport, guests will be fast-tracked through immigration and whisked away to the secluded entrance of the villas where an arrival ceremony experience awaits.Under the ancient canopy of Siem Reap’s Palace trees, each villa will offer its residents total privacy, complete with their own Bill Bensley tropical garden that brings the outside in.Each Art Deco-inspired villa will offer 156sqm of space across two pavilions, including a floor-to-ceiling glass bathroom with views over the garden and the outdoor bath.Inside the living space, 3D  murals have been carved to portray the rippling folds of Jayavarman’s robe, one of the Khmer Kings who reigned from 1181-1218, known for his powerful, pioneering spirit.Six of the villas are able to be combined into three 312sqm two-bedroom villas (each with its own pool) to accommodate a family or friends travelling together.Guests will have full use of the restaurants, bars, Shinta Mani Spa by Khmer Tonics and facilities in the adjacent Shinta Mani Hotels, or can have personal service from any outlets in their villa.Bensley Butlers are on hand when they are needed and invisible when they are not. If guests want petals scattered for a romantic outdoor bath, a rooftop or poolside barbecue, or to set up the sky bed so they can sleep under the stars in the oversize rooftop daybed, just call them. This small but highly trained band of butlers, under the helm of Head Butler Mac, are traditionally trained, resourceful and will look after all the guests’ needs.A proportion of the daily room rate will be donated to the non-profit Shinta Mani Foundation, created by the owner, to support health, education and development programmes for the less fortunate in the community.There are two ways to enjoy the villas: on a bed and breakfast basis or – as Bensley likes to travel – full on, immersed in the culture and nature with no limits:Bensley Bed and BreakfastFast-track immigration on arrival at Siem Reap International AirportPrivate roundtrip airport transfersPersonal Bensley ButlerExpress check-in and express in-villa checkoutUnpacking on arrival and packing before departureWelcome champagne on arrivalWelcome amenitiesWelcome 30-minute head and shoulder massage in villaSumptuous daily breakfast for two adultsDaily high tea with canapésDaily seasonal fruitLaundry serviceRemork (local tuk tuk) transportation within Siem Reap 24 hoursBensley All-Inclusive ExperienceFast track immigration on arrival and departure at Siem Reap International AirportPrivate round trip airport transfersPersonal Bensley ButlerExpress check-in and express in-villa check-outUnpacking on arrival and packing before departureWelcome champagne on arrivalWelcome amenitiesWelcome 30-minute head and shoulder massage in villaFree use of smart phone with local SIM card during stayDaily breakfast for two adultsDaily high tea with canapés for two adultsDaily seasonal fruitLaundry serviceRemork (local tuk tuk) transportation within Siem Reap 24 hoursLunch and dinner daily for two adultsFree-flow mini-bar of wine, beer and soft drinksDaily sunset cocktails on private rooftop living room in villa with barefoot butlerSightseeing tour with private car, driver and tour guide to Angkor Wat and other major temples, including sunrise tour with champagne breakfast or sunset at Pra Rup Templelast_img
